What's in Storr for you

This is a great place to spend half a day especially if the weather is clear. Go for a hike and get some amazing views of Skye.

If the day is reasonably clear, perhaps with some low-hanging clouds are coming in from the sea, it is marvellous. You won't need gear to climb Mt Everest to reach the view point, but don't come in flip-flops or high heels. There will be many people.

It was 2pm when we arrived on a bright, clear mid November day and 2 couples parked on the dedicated free parking area. Information boards show the route and useful information. The path starts quite normal but as you turn a few corners it becomes steep, wet and icy. This did no deter us and although no benches or hand... More

But do have MacInnes and Innes blood so even though it was windy, cold, and raining... hiked it anyways. No real pictures from the top due to weather, but hey... the cold, wet, grumpy middle-aged whippersnapper of Storr... The last bit sucked as the rain turned to sleet and wind really picked up.

This review is based on views of the Old Man of Storr and not of climbing up. the way up didn't seem to bad but with the lack of time and daylight in November we had to just enjoy the views. You'll have brilliant views coming from south by Loch Fada or after passing it there are some great views... More

Well worth a visit and if you're into walking there are plenty of footpaths around the area. On a clear day you can see for miles and the scenery is beautiful. The Old Man of Storr is pretty unusual and would recommend a visit. It gets very busy and parking can become a problem so probably best to arrive early... More

Very famous attraction on Skye. We were hoping to stop at main car park and walk up but was completely packed with cars and tours. If wanting just a view of the old man of storr I recommend a lay by just before (if coming from Portree) or just after the main car park ( if coming from other direction)... More

We came here as it was recommended by our host. The weather wasn't good so we were contemplating on going. I'm glad we decided to go although it started drizzling when we arrived and it got worse - with strong winds too. We managed to get to the peak of the hill. It took us about 30 minutes. The view...

A must see in Skye but if possible go on a clear day as the views from the top to the sea and lochs below are as lovely as the Old Man itself. Can get quite busy in height of season so to enjoy it at its best go early or late in the day! You'll need something more than... More
